Albert Stanley passed peacefully away at the Health Science Centre on Friday, August 18, 2023 at the age of 85. He left to join his loving wife Lorraine (née Vivian), parents William and Carrie and family that have passed before him.
Mourning his loss are sons Rick (Debbie), Tony (Brenda), and Shawn (Michele), his adoring grand children Jill (Marco), Holly (Jamie), Tyler (Jess), Brandon, Sarah (Matthew) and Megan (Nick), and great-grandchildren Eli and Mya. Also mourning his loss are his brother Gerald, Jessie (Leo), Eugene, Gord (Wynanne) & Carolyn (Arch), in-laws Jim (Alice), Pat, Christine (Howard), Pat, Beverly, Kay, Gladys, Gert, neighbors Dawn & Vince, and all the people he touched.
Albert spent his life working as a heavy equipment operator for the city of St. John’s and Bowering Park, where he even had a pet monkey. He spent years being involved in hockey with his wife Lorraine, starting hockey associations that are still present today; he was even inducted in the Mt. Pearl Hockey Hall of Fame. Albert was a member of the Stanley Unique 6 with brothers Gerald, Doug, Jim, Winston & Charlie rowing in the Royal St. John’s Regatta. He was even the lead singer of Rhythm Rockers with Winston, Joe, Frazier, Harold, and Joey. He was always a lovely, lively man! Putting smiles on the faces of everyone he met. He never shied away from a good laugh or a bit of fun. When asked how he was feeling, he would always say “with two hands” or “like da bird”. He never allowed the struggles of life to impact how wonderful he made the people around him feel.
We are honored to have experienced his love of life, and making people laugh. It is something we will all cherish forever.
He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
